Like wheels on the bus, you go round and round about most purchases for your kids. Is it safe? Does it work? Will it last?
So when we discovered Momma sippys and feeding sets, we were happy to close the circle. The Italian line of cups, utensils, plates, and teethers have an eye-catching, ergonomically designed round shape that looks as at home in a toddler’s hand as it would in a modern art museum.
But the collection isn’t all flash and dazzle; the design is intended to keep early eaters’ attention (watch it teeter on the high chair tray), keep germs at bay (they wobble but won’t fall), and make gripping easy for pudgy hands.
Our favorite is the developmental drink set (pictured above), which comes with one cup and three interchangeable tops — a traditional bottle nipple, a sippy with dual-handle action, and a no-spill straw. Plus, everything is BPA and phthalate free. Making it easy to embrace.
